Damon Harrison will be on track to play a ninth NFL season. The Seahawks intend to sign the free agent nose tackle, Adam Schefter of ESPN.com tweets.

Snacks visited the Seahawks on Tuesday and was scheduled to make a trip to Green Bay for a Packers meeting Wednesday. But the latter summit appears to be canceled. However, Harrison will need to go through the NFL’s beefed-up COVID-19 testing protocols before officially joining the Seahawks.

Free agents now must pass six days’ worth of coronavirus tests prior to joining teams, and Mike Garafolo of NFL.com notes the timeframe for Harrison’s Seahawks debut is not certain (Twitter link). Nevertheless, the former All-Pro defensive lineman has pledged to join the Seahawks’ 16-man practice squad — likely as a way for the team to stash the longtime starter while he reacclimates.

Harrison, 32 in November, considered retirement while with the Lions, who acquired him via trade from the Giants in 2018. He did start 15 games for Detroit last season and has logged 111 starts in his career. Being 1-for-8 in playoff appearances in his career, Harrison has made it known he seeks a winning situation. The Seahawks, who have made the playoffs in seven of the past eight seasons prior to their 4-0 start this year, will certainly qualify.
